Trasmediterránea

Trasmediterranea is a ferry operator which operates passengers and cargo ferries between mainland Spain and the Canary Islands, the Balearic Islands, and North Africa.

The Trasmediterranea (“cross-mediterranean”) company was constituted on November 26, 1916. In 1978, it became a state-owned company, until it was privatised by the Spanish government in 2002. The Spanish government sold the company to a consortium that consisted of Acciona Logística (the majority shareholder), Caja de Ahorros del Mediterráneo, Compañía de Remolcadores Ibaizabal, Agrupación Hotelera Dóliga, Suministros Ibiza and Naviera Armas.

In 2004 the company acquired the ferry operator FerriMaroc from Cenargo. In 2005 the company changed its trading name to Acciona Trasmediterranea. In 2006 the company acquired EuroFerrys but continued to operate the company as a separate entity until its operations and vessels were absorbed into those of Trasmediterranea in 2008.

In 2015 the trading name of the company reverted back to Trasmediterranea. At the end of October 2017 the Acciona Group agreed to sell its 92.7% stake in Trasmediterranea to Naviera Armas, another Spanish based shipping company, operating ferries mainly in the Canary Islands.

Both companies, although now owned by Naviera Armas operate independently of each other.
